Predecessor Chevrolet Trax

The Chevrolet Tracker is a subcompact crossover SUV manufactured by General Motors since 2019. Positioned as a successor to the Trax, it is produced in Brazil for the Latin American market, and in China by SAIC-GM for the Chinese market. [2] Despite the use of the Tracker name, the Tracker is not related to the model sold in North America as a rebadged Suzuki Escudo from the 1990s to the 2000s. [3]

Overview

The Tracker in the Chinese market was revealed in 2019 alongside the Trailblazer. The Chinese-market Tracker was designed to replace the Trax in China, and shares its Chinese name as the Trax. On the side note, the Trax was also called the Tracker in several other markets.

The Tracker made its Brazilian debut in 2020, with production commencing at the São Caetano do Sul assembly. [4] GM then announced that the Tracker would arrive in Mexico to replace the first generation Trax. [5]

The Global Emerging Markets (GEM) platform which the Chinese market Tracker was built on was designed for developing automotive markets including China and Latin America. The Tracker launched in China in 2019 is one of the vehicles with the GEM platform and is likely not intended for the United States and Canada. [6]

Engines

The Chinese market Tracker is available with a 3-cylinder 1.0 turbo engine producing 84 kW and a 3-cylinder 1.3 turbo engine producing 121 kW. [7]
